I almost bought a CF-U1 mk2 yesterday. I thought it would be handy to have a tablet sometimes for our marine diagnostic software while offsite. You know a little smaller than the CF-30, still has a usb for the diagnostic cable, very little typing needs to be done (customer name and date). Saw one on eBay for 299, with batteries, dock, power cable, win 7 pro, camera (pics for customers) ready to go. I offered 199 because 200 was all I wanted to spend. He countered 235 and I declined. $35 is all that kept my common sense from buying it. What is wrong with me? :pat:

What I meant was that I don't really need it, but it sounded like a good idea. The only thing that stopped me was $35 and common sense. I don't need it but it seemed cool. These toughbooks are a slippery slope. Rob's avatar has that haunting message "one does not simply own 1 toughbook" I have 3 now, but I had 2 more cf-30 I sold to my boss. (He loves them). Why are they so addictive?

If you have common sense, you will never fit in here.

I have common sense, but about what I have no idea. Apparently I have acquired some passion for toughbooks and I have definitely found a place that has a lot of passion and knowledge.

Everything else aside since you can't upgrade the ram on them the Mk2 is the unit to have as it has 2gb of ram. The others have 1gb of ram. The processor is a little bigger as well.
